Alberto Diaz Gutierrez’s classic image of Che Guevara has taken a life of its own, appearing on t-shirts, posters, and memorabilia across other forms of media, lifting Guevara into icon-status. Meanwhile, Gutierrez—nicknamed Korda— has been a prolific photographer in his own right, becoming a commercial photographer before being swept up in the Cuban Revolution of the 1950s.
It was this event that prompted his work to take a dramatic shift. Between candid moments of revolutionaries in battle and Fidel Castro, Korda’s photography of this period became important for other countries to understand the conflict in the tiny island. The Museum of Latin American Art brings together a series of archived photographs from private by Korda for public exposure, and to bring historical perspective for current political events.
